in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal poll shows that americans favor stiffer gun laws so that is his plan moving forward. >> thanks to you, dave, before you leave, picking up on what kristin said there. the president's gun proposal here, there are a lot of folks who have surmised that the president has asked for things that politically he knows he will not be able to get, especially the assault weapon's ban, is that what the white house strategy is? >> they cannot say they are giving up on the assault weapon's ban, but i think they are looking and a
in the first three months of pregnancy. the 7-2 ruling will likely lead to drastic overhall of laws on abortion. >> michael: it was 40 years ago that they legalized abortion in this country. the harris poll taken at that time found 52% of americans supported the decision. a wall street journal nbc poll found that 54% of americans believe women should be able to have an abortion. despite the widespread public support many lawmakers are doing whatever they can to take away a woman's right to choose. coming away from washington, d.c. is kay shepherd with mother jones magazine, kate, thank you for coming inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you h
over a long period of time happen at once. president obama sat down, page and protection act into law and health care reform was done. when we look at deficit reduction, it's four or five deals, each one in endless, horrible slog through the d.c. marshes. in the second term the two things we are going to see, it does not look like we are going to see much more on jobs. the white house is not fighting hard. they have not made infrastructure a condition of moving forward. we got $600 billion in the fiscal cliff. republicans are going to make a decision to include revenues or whether or not they are going to make a decision that is better to do no more reduction over the second term. if it is what it takes to keep the president from getting more tax revenues. >> let me ask this. what i hear you saying is deficit reduction. it seems as though we have a president who is legitimately a deficit hawk. he believes the deficit is a problem and deficit reduction is a priority. when you look at the approval rate of americans on handling of the economy, it's split half and half with support for th
with their republican ideas and mysteriously, they would even say no to their own ideas. >> this law failed by seven votes. when seven republicans, who had co-sponsored the bill, had co-sponsored the idea, suddenly walked away from their own proposal after i endorsed it. so they make a proposal, sign on to the bill. i say, great. good idea. i turned around -- they're gone. what happened? >> this was a hallmark of president obama's first term. republicans were going to say no, no, no, no matter what he offered. even if what he offered was their own idea in the first place. that is how it went for months and then that is how it went for years. and now, what's new? he is not doing that anymore. >> i have put forward a very clear principle. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. you know, we're not going to play the same game that we saw happen in 2011. so we're not going to do that. but i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to do that again. >> as i said earlier this week, one of the things i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bil
this the day after rick perry said the solution -- rick perry says we don't need laws. we need to go to church and pray. so the party that prays the gay away now prays the ak away. >> stephanie: that's right. they say guns are absolutely essential in god's world. >> that's right. we have a well regulated militia, the national guard. the real bad guy here is james madison for weird writing. >> stephanie: that's enough of the organ. he said, this california lawmaker said guns are used an average of 3 million times a year. that's like 6,900 times a day. other people say it is only 200 times aday. whatever the number is they are used to defend human life. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: what? >> it's all to save lives. >> stephanie: defend our properties, our freedoms our faith -- >> our faith? no one is coming foryour guns. >> if you need a gun to perfect your faith, you don't have much faith. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: protect your manager scene. >> i think she might be a muuuslim. >> stephanie: he has also proposed a school marshall plan that will allow teachers in cali
action. >> the senate has never passed a budget. it is the rule and the law that by april 15th you have to so we're saying is, we will extend the debt limit until the time line where you have a budget. a road map. so you stop digging yourself in the hole that we get out of this problem. >> keith, carry reid issued a statement saying it's reassuring to see republicans beginning to back off the threat to hold our economy hostage. if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase and meeting the existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. here we are as i said three days before inauguration and it looks like another fight that the republicans are not prepared to it seems to follow through on despite the threats. >> zachary and i were having a conversation in the green room and i said i don't understand the meaning of a second inauguration for the president. i get it now. the reason we need another inauguration is apparently one party doesn't understand we had an election in november and they lost. which means that you move on and you let the president be the president of the un
laws? immigration reform? fiscal fights? perhaps, but in the last couple of days he has relaunched the legendary campaign of his, the second term "obama for america" has become an action, and now joining us is bill from the think tank, and from the chicago sun-times, in the flesh, and this is nice and we don't get to do this often. but let me start with you, because i know you did some writing of the new operation, but how do you think that organizing for action can be without the president at the top of the ticket? >> well, because they have such great mailing lists and such very state-of-the-art social media and communications, and i think it is a very effective way of amplifying the bully pull p pit that president obama has and because it is independent of the democratic national committee and has no other goal except to support the president's agenda, this new group which is supposed to be meet iing as we speak at hotel in washington, i think that it can be a powerful amplification and support system for the obama agenda in the second term. >> do you think that this is also som
pushing one of his top agenda items. changing gun laws in this country. in his weekly radio address, president obama urging people to call their lawmakers. >> ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks and renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and if the answer is no, ask them why not. ask them why an a grade from the gun lobby is more important than keeping things safe in a classroom. >> nbc's kristen welker is outside the white house for us. on the very last day of his first term we saw him out earlier working at that school for the national day of service. besides that, how is he preparing for the big day tomorrow and the bigger day, perhaps, on monday. >> reporter: craig, i can tell you that he's behind the scenes working hard on the big address that he will deliver on monday. in fact, a senior administration official tells me he has a strong working draft that you would expect just a few days out from delivering such a large speech, and i am told he's putting the finishing touches on that with his speech team h
to help in the push for stiffer gun control laws. >> although there's no single solution that can bring a decisive end to this senseless violence, it's incumbent upon each of us to try. and it's time to consider what steps we can take together to save lives. >> joining me now here in the studio, scott smith, mayor of mesa, arizona, who will be the next president of the mayors conference. mayor smith, thank you for joining me. >> thanks for having me. >> let's talk about guns. you are from a so-called red state there in arizona. >> so-called? >> you know. >> it is red. >> let's take a look at the graphics here that shows how things go, in terms of essentially red state -- blue state divide across this country with our gun laws. arizona among the places that wants to loosen laws. so you know what's coming here, in the light of newtown, do you think that your state is wrong on that front? >> that's the problem with this. who's right and who's wrong. we're talking about a basic constitutional right. there's a lot of differences of opinion as to at what point do you start to infringe upon th
ahead and enforce the laws on the books, they've been pushing for that all along and they like that and plus, it was a couple of weeks ago, where wayne lapierre was excoriated on the airwaves for saying how dare him coming out and saying we should have more police officers or armed personnel in the schools. and now the president of the united states, in his initiatives have suggested that as well to put some more school resource people in the schools. so, that goes along with the nra as well. >> brian: right now we're waiting for the swearing-in ceremony nor vice-president joe biden to get underway, they're running a little late and we'll bring it to you live when it happens, even if you're in the middle of at pocket chair ad. does this look like a threat? a five-year-old suspended fr kindergarten because of this? we report you decide. >> looks like a hair dryer.

. on wednesday the president proposed a package of gun law reforms in response to the massacre in newtown last month. the package is by all accounts the most sweeping attempt to curb gun violence at the national level since 1994. the president took a number of executive actions immediately but the most contentious members including a proposed limit on ammunition magazines, stronger background checks and reinstatement of assault weapons ban will be left for congress to decide. >> these are some of executive actions i am announcing today. as important as these steps are they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference, congress, too, must act. and congress must act soon. >> all right. we have heard a lot about the political strength of the nra. there was a lot of discussion about whether the president would follow up the speech, the moving speech at the memorial with some kind of executive and legislative component and so i guess my first question to you is how -- what were you anticipating you would see from the president? was this more

the stage. for many people, when the mother-in-law of the president actually moved into the white house, it seemed like the perfect moment for a sitcom. that never happened. but the president's daughters now we've watched them grow up in the white house under four years under the scrutiny of the public eye. i think sasha had the greatest moment of the entire campaign yesterday when after he took the oath of office, she could be audibly heard congratulating her daddy for not messing up. >> jennifer: you know what's ironic about that. i was of watching another program this morning. they were offended that the president after he was done said to his daughter, i did it. as though i did it. i got elected instead of i got through this without messing up. because -- >> jennifer: exactly. it wasn't a we built this moment but famously, four years ago, the president made some -- omitted some words in the oath of office which is why john roberts had to give him the oath of office again the next day. that coupled with the fact that this year, inauguration day falls on a monday and he had to be swor
